    So… We adopted an 8 week old female kitten a few days ago. We have that “spinning” scoopless litter box. We also got the “Worlds Best Cat Litter” We are on day 4. We found her spot under our bed that she has been using as a litter box. All day today, she has been locked in the bathroom with her litter box. She finally pooped inside it. We are going to continue keeping her in there at least until tomorrow morning to reinforce that she continues to use it. We have thoroughly cleaned and descented the area she was using. We will also be keeping the door closed to keep her from getting in there at all, at least until she has a handle on the litter box. We plan on keeping the litter box where it is for at least a couple weeks to further reinforce use of the box. Is there anything else we can do to better ensure success?

    There is kitten attract powder you can put on the litterbox to get her to use it more often. Also, you can take her and make her dig around in the litterbox so she will get the idea that she is supposed to dig there and potty.

    My cats were afraid of the automatic litter boxes. Use a regular box with “Kitten Attract” litter; that should solve the problem. If you don’t like cleaning litter boxes you shouldn’t have a cat!

    And also, with the self cleaning box it will be harder to keep the smell on the litter to tell her where it is ok to go. You can pick up a cheap box at a store and use some kitten attract in it. When she gets the hang of it you can clean it out and put it away and let her use the automatic one.
